Gibson Limited Edition ES Les Paul Blend Electric Guitar (with Case)
The solid body Les Paul Standard and semi-acoustic ES-335 are the two most influential electric guitars ever built for their respective genres. Limited to just 50 in the world, gibson now brings them together in the ES-Les Paul, a stunning “meeting of minds” that blends the most important aspects of form and function from two immensely popular designs. Far more than merely a “chambered Les Paul” or an ES-335 “shaped like a single-cut”, this entirely new guitar is the result of painstaking assessment of what makes each of these legendary models great, and a careful marriage of features by the skilled luthiers at Gibson Memphis.
Gibson Limited Edition ES Les Paul Blend
The unique tones available to those who play hollow body guitars has just taken a huge leap in versatility with the added ability to accurately emulate the sound of an acoustic guitar. The already present airy quality of the semi-hollowbody construction of the ES-Les Paul is enhanced by acoustic bridge pickups from LR Baggs, resulting in the finest quality acoustic simulation anyone can find in a primarily electric guitar anywhere. With a Maple back & rim, Mahogany neck with cream bound rosewood board with Pearloid traps, Bone nut, and Rolled neck binding for comfort and ease of playability. Only 50 of these rare, technological tour de force items in Sunset Burst will be made.
